15 Most Exciting Places to Go to with Your Kids in Singapore 

Singapore is one of the best places for you to explore especially if you have kids. It has everything from family-friendly attractions to exciting activities that go from the indoors to the great outdoors. 

As someone who is a kid at heart and has younger cousins and siblings, I always appreciate the fact that Singapore has plenty of museums, theme parks, zoos, and nature reserves. It gives me and the little ones plenty of opportunities to have fun. 

If you are gearing up to have a wonderful day with your kids, then I can recommend some of my top choices when it comes to attractions in Singapore. This list will cover everything from aquariums to parks so be ready to have your own unique experience. 

Top Things to Do with Kids in Singapore

Singapore is a haven of family-friendly attractions and activities and I am excited to share with you some of my favorites, including those that are free for you to experience and those that require a fee.

Kiztopia is a huge 18,000 square feet indoor playground where you can find different arrays of themed play areas arranged in a mini town. It is ideal for kids ages 12 years old and below. 

What I love about this place are the different playrooms that resemble a small town. There are grocery shops, boutiques, salons, restaurants, and even small houses where kids can play pretend.

You don’t even have to worry about the safety of your kids in the playhouse. All the toys and equipment in Kiztopia are lined with soft materials and created with huge pieces to avoid choking hazards. 

There are also active zones where your kid can compete with other children in a child-proofed obstacle course. These zones are perfect for kids who are looking for a more physical challenge while playing.  

At the souvenir shop, you can purchase an adorable stuffed toy version of your favorite Kiztopia character. You can even take a picture with the giant stuffed animals as a keepsake!

Superpark is for kids who want to be more active. It has all sorts of attractions like slides, tunnels, trampolines, a pedal car track, a kids’ gym, towers, and obstacle courses.

This park is the perfect place to exhaust all your kid’s excess energy. Every obstacle course presents a challenge that will not only excite your child but would also encourage them to think of strategies to go over the course faster. 

I personally love how challenging some of the courses are in Superpark since it gives the kids the thrill that they are looking for. My younger cousins and siblings enjoyed going through the maze tunnels as well. 

Superpark 2

One of the most popular zones, and our favorite as well, is the pedal car track. This zone provides guests with pedal carts that they can drive around in the race tracks and use to compete with each other to the finish line. 

Before you take your kid to this playground, remember that there are some height restrictions and rules in specific areas of Superpark. These rules are enforced to avoid incidents, so we urge you to adhere to them.

If you want to experience nature without the sun blaring its heat right at your face, Canopy Park is the best place for you to visit. This man-made park situated inside the Jewel complex features artificial lawns that you can lie down on. 

As someone who loves nature but doesn’t like getting pestered with insects or having my skin get burned by the sun, I enjoy hanging out in the inner lawns and garden of Canopy Park. It’s a lovely experience to have a picnic here. 

There are also plenty of fun activities for your kids to enjoy. They can go down the slides, bounce around the nets, or just have their own fun running around the huge grass-lined area.

My personal favorite is the net since it allows me to jump around while exploring the park. This net covers the majority of the Canopy Park roof so you can see all the attractions offered including the garden and parts of the airport.

There is also a water play area where kids from 6 to 12 years old can have fun splashing water at each other. The water play is linked to a sensor that detects movement and triggers a water splash that your kids will surely enjoy.

Meanwhile, the toddler play zone features a huge sway bridge, stepping springs, and a fish fountain with an interactive landscape for your child to explore. If your kid is aged 1 to 5, they will surely enjoy going down the water tunnel and playing with the sculptures.

When going to this park, I recommend bringing extra clothes, especially if you plan to take your kid to the water play area. Keep an eye out for your child and tell them to be careful since the wet tiles are slippery.

Aside from the physical challenge, the Houbii Spot obstacle course will also test your kid’s leadership skills and mind as they work their way through the rope maze. 

The best thing about this is that you can also take part in the activities as well since the obstacle courses are created for both kids and adults. The setup is also high enough that you can see the other parts of the zoo.

If your kid is a fan of dolphins, then they are going to absolutely love hanging out with the adorable marine animals in Sentosa’s Dolphin Island. This wildlife park offers a variety of fun experiences including swimming with and feeding the dolphins. 

What’s great about this aquarium is that it teaches your kids about dolphin habitats and diets. There are kiosks around the area that you can check out to give your child an educational experience they wouldn’t forget. 

Dolphin Island Sentosa 2

When visiting this place, I suggest you bring an extra pair of clothing. There is an option to swim with the dolphins, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on that. 

Just remember to follow the instruction of the caretakers. 

Dolphin Island is working towards a more sustainable environment that encourages kids to perform their responsibility in keeping the marine life safe and well-taken care of.

Mandai Wildlife Reserve is a one-size-fits-all zoo where you can find all kinds of animals from marine to nocturnal to avian. The park itself is covered in lush tropical forests to emulate the spirit of wildlife and create a seemingly natural environment for the animals. 

Walking around this park feels almost like observing the animals from their natural habitat. It has the kind of atmosphere that will make you feel like you are truly in the wild. 

The reserve is divided into four zones: Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, River Wonders, and Jungle Bird Park. Mandai is also home to over 15,000 animals from 1,000 different species. 

Mandai Wildlife Reserve 2

In the Singapore Zoo alone, you will witness 2,800 animals either in cages or freely roaming around the park. You will see every animal from lions to zebras to elephants. 

The Jurong bird park also features the biggest bird paradise in the world. All around the park, you will see over a hundred different bird species. 

Some of the birds are even available to take pictures with. I especially love how you can play and interact with the parrots in the park. 

The Night Safari is the first of its kind, allowing you to have a trip around the zoo at night to witness the nocturnal animals. I absolutely love looking at the adorable bats and tarsiers in this area. 

One thing you must know when visiting the Night Safari zone is that it has a strict rule when it comes to photos. A lot of the animals are sensitive to light so you need to make sure that your camera has no flashes. 

Mandai Wildlife Reserve 3

The River Wonders is the first and only river wildlife park in Asia featuring one of the biggest freshwater aquariums in the world. This area houses animals like manatees, giant river otters, electric eels, red-bellied piranhas, and more.   

In the glass tunnel of River Wonders, you will see animals you will typically find in lakes and rivers. These animals swim around in the enclosure, creating the perfect backdrop for your photo.

As a cat person, I am absolutely in love with this place and the resident cats that are sweet and accommodating to guests. Each kitten has their own personality that you cannot help but adore.   

When visiting the cafe, keep in mind that there are strict rules that you need to follow to avoid upsetting the cats. Children must also be supervised by an adult during the visit.

This wonderful tour allows you to explore different iconic sites in Singapore while on board a classic Vespa sidecar. You can cruise through alleyways past the beautiful landmarks and uncover hidden gems around the city. 

Singapore Sidecar Tours 2

I just loved how personal and exciting the sidecar trip felt. Since I was the only passenger, I was able to experience a more personal connection with the places we visited. 

I especially loved how fun and accommodating the tour guides were for this trip. They went above and beyond in making sure that I saw all the hidden gems of the city and even shared a personal story or two while on the trip.  

The fact that the vehicle is small also brings opportunities for you and your guide to explore streets you never would’ve seen on bus tours — or any other tour for that matter. All in all, this is the perfect tour for those looking for a personal experience.

The food in the restaurant is also phenomenal as is what is expected from professional chefs. Each food is carefully curated to give the guests an authentic taste of Singaporean cuisine. 

The cruise can take up to 1 hour and 30 minutes complete with a lovely breakfast set and a cruise along the coastline. The ship will dock near the SEA Aquarium and Sentosa where you can continue your fun-filled day. 

Although the morning cruise is just as fun as the night cruise, I recommend booking the night trip since it will allow you to witness the gorgeous city light of Singapore from afar. Additionally, the Royal Albatross itself has a breathtaking light display.

For me, this ride feels like the perfect place to see the entirety of the city. It makes you feel like you’re on top of the world and your kids will surely love the thrill and excitement brought about by the slow-moving carts.
